Jean Schroedel(a courageous trailblazer) takes on a task that is well overdue, even in 1985. Here are 25 self stories of women who wanted a piece of the forbidden pie (a nontraditional job/trade). Pay attention to what happened to them. They are the backbone of women's freedom. Our daughters and granddaughters owe them more than it is possible to measure. All women are standing on their shoulders. I am not in Schroedel's book, but I was one of those pioneers...a "forgotten first" in 1978. I was the first woman in the nation (and other nations, as well....it was impossible to find records)to enter into a model/patternmaker 5 yr apprenticeship for a midwest tractor industry. These women contributed much more than most people can comprehend. Reading this book will open your eyes. Thank you, Jean Schroedel!
